After contraception controversy, Catholic Church announces 'religious freedom' campaign

(CNN) - The Roman Catholic Church announced a major campaign Thursday aimed at bringing attention to what it said were growing threats to religious liberty in the United States, including the pending White House rule requiring health insurance companies to provide free contraceptive coverage to employees of Catholic organizations.

An official with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said the initiative would stretch out over the course of a few years and that it would include everything from encouraging priests to address religious liberty concerns in church to sending inserts for church bulletins.

    Nothing but the Catholic church tail wagging the GOBP dog, and the "gals" are PO'ed. They made Mitt McCain push Ann into the line of fire. Unhinged GOBP wingnuts don't talk about that.

    With the "adherence" rate to Catholic dogma decreasing constantly, this is a PR campaign that will not affect the vast majority of catholics' vote....including mine

    Yesterday myview was a woman. As a Lutheran, ( we are true catholics ) I do not want the bishops of the catholic church dictating our religious freedoms. It is time for Rome to flog their bishops.
